Anonymous asked: im so curious to who it is because i'm from NZ and the ED community is pretty small here like pretty much everyone knows everyone and if you don't know someone you know someone who knows them lol!

I’m pretty sure it was someone who is friends with Emily or Emily herself — Emily’s blog was mission-em-possible or whatever. The ask actually came from the University of Auckland. 

I started crying in the car today, because a song brought me back to a moment in time, 13 years ago. I just finished going to a movie with my big brother, and afterwards he wanted to take me to lunch. I didn’t make a fuss, even though my plan was to fast all day, so when we got to the restaurant and he asked me, “Are you going to eat?” I just nodded yes, awkwardly. He could see the fear in my eyes, and became irritated. “Are you sure you’re going to eat? I don’t want to go to lunch if you aren’t going to eat or if you’re going to be uncomfortable.” I told him I was fine and that we could go in, but he got even more angry and said, “No. We’re not going to eat. We’re not going inside.” I started crying, because in that moment I really would have been fine with a salad, but the look on my face told him everything. He was angry at me. He was angry at the situation. He was angry I was ruining lunch. I had made him mad and it was my fault everyone went home hungry. 

So I started crying today, because that’s one of the saddest eating disorder related memories I have. I’m sad for my brother who didn’t understand, and I’m sad for that lonely 15-year-old girl who tried to do the right thing and got punished for it anyway. I’m sad my brother reacted the way he did, and I’m sad the perfect day ended on such a depressing note. 

I’ve never watched the movie we saw in its entirety since then, because it just brings me back to that day.

Assuming the post was true, it was pretty ridiculous and screams, “I’m so insecure and need validation at all times!” She’s assuming they don’t joke with her because she’s fat, so really, she’s imposing this fat discrimination onto herself. 

"Wah, why don’t my friends joke with ME?" Like, if that’s your main problem, you need to go out into the real world. Do the ice bucket challenge or something so you’re not making it about you.

Anonymous asked: How do you know what country asks come from? You would make excellent detective man :P

It’s no secret thing — I have statcounter installed, which means I can see where every ask I get comes from. 

anti—bullshit:

FYI.

I got the same email a couple of weeks ago and have been sending permalinks ever since. 

In reply to a message I received from overweight-anorexic:

Correct. I only report blogs that glorify and/or promote eating disorders. People who freely blog about their eating disorders are safe — as long as they are not breaking Tumblr community guidelines.

You technically cannot be diagnosed with all three of those disorders (anorexia, bulimia, and EDNOS) at the same time, so I’m hoping you received all three diagnoses at different times.

If you feel guilty for reblogging pro-ana material, then all you have to do is stop. You aren’t helpless, and if you use your illness as an excuse for doing it, it’s a bad excuse. People with eating disorders should give themselves a little more credit. If you can’t stop, then at least do the world a favor and stop reblogging that content onto a public blog for others to see. You are indirectly harming your followers.

I have not reported your blog, even though I easily could and it would most likely be terminated based on your content. Basically I report blogs that glorify or promote eating disorders. That means if a blog is posting or reblogging content that makes eating disorders look good or desirable, they get reported. That includes obvious thinspo that glorifies anorexia, quotes like “skip dinner, wake up thinner,” tips and tricks, low calorie diets, etc. Your own blog is a good example of what I report.

You say you don’t like people who romanticize eating disorders, and yet, you do this consistently on your blog by posting things like thinspo.

If you TRULY want to help, you would stop posting pro-ana material on your blog. Talking about your eating disorder and ED experiences is fine, but you rarely do that. Looking at your archive right now, it’s mostly black and white thinspo and depressing quotes. That’s hardly “expressing” yourself. It’s not helping you, nor is it helping anyone who comes across your blog.

Hope that helps.

Anonymous asked: (educating-ed) Do you have a link to the full list of APA bloggers? I'm going on a hiatus and would like to leave a link to it on my blog.

I used to. I think I made it private because I cannot access the link. Does anyone know a quick way how to view all your private posts without having to go through the archive?
